ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf has quickly become a firm favourite with golfers seeking great value on stay-and-play breaks close to Portugal’s capital and the innovative organisation has enjoyed an amazing start to 2015 – having already taken 50 per cent of its total sales for the whole of last year.

Twelve months on from creating the enterprising brand, ORIZONTE has reported record bookings in January, with significant interest from players in northern European markets anxious to escape the cold and enjoy a warm-weather break.

Golfers from the UK, France and Scandinavia have all been keen to take advantage of the attractive packages available, with ORIZONTE offering access to some of the leading courses in close proximity to Lisbon together with exceptional value for money on a wide range of accommodation options in the region.

José Maria Cazal Ribeiro, from ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf, said: “We’re delighted with the rapid progress we have made in such a short space of time and the demand for bookings that we’ve received from golfers in northern Europe recently has been fantastic.

“Our brand encompasses a fine selection of some of Portugal’s most naturally testing golf courses which, coupled with a great climate and outstanding cultural offering, makes our region a must for any travelling golfer.”

ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf brings together six well-established but unsung layouts to the south of Lisbon in the natural beauty of the Costa Azul region, and one further 9-hole course in Oeiras, just 15 minutes from the city centre.

Quinta do Peru has hosted several European Challenge Tour events while Aroeira features two championship layouts including Aroeira I, venue for the Portuguese Open in 1996 and 1997.

Ribagolfe has been a host of the European Tour Qualifying School since 2009 and provides two more challenging courses, both set within ancient cork oak forest.

Golfers can also enjoy the 7,000-plus yards challenge at Santo Estevão, while the extensive practice facilities available across the venues help make ORIZONTE the ideal option for individuals and groups looking to book a stay, play and learn package.
